How do I screen shot from my hp elitebook if I am running windows vista?


You need to press PrtScr or Print Screen button to capture the screen to the clip board. I believe on your laptop you need to hold the fn key down to select it. On the bottom left of the keyboard is a key that has fn on it. Any key on your keyboard that has a second function will need the fn key to access this second key function. PrtScr button should be on the top row right hand side of the keyboard.

Hold down the fn key and press the PrtScr key and then you can paste it into a document or paint or whatever. The PrintScreen function works in versions of windows I have ever used, from Windows 3.11 for workgroups to Windows 8.

I want to know how to use the function button


The function button, or FN button, is used just like the shift key or ctrl key. Hold the FN button down and press the key with the pre programmed function you desire to use. For instance, on an HP 1245 the function or short cut key to put the computer in sleep mode is FN+F5. The Keys with functions have that feature indicated by a symbol for the function in a squared circle. Most of these are your F keys at the very top row of the keyboard. Some are on the number pad keys.

What are the names of kyboard and its keys ?


it is only for a computer keyboard hope it help from you.

A computer keyboard serves as a main operating tool for accessing and inputting data into a computer. The keyboard features many functions and keys that a user may never use, but is still essential to some users. Understanding the keyboard can improve computer knowledge and use.

QWERTY Pad

The "QWERTY" pad is main sections of letters on the keyboard. These letters are mainly used for typing and also as shortcuts in programs like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe After Effects and computer games.
Number Pads

The far right side of the keyboard features a number pad that resembles a calculator. This number pad is essential for programs like Excel, but can also be used to input numbers as a typing function. More numbers are just above the "QWERTY" keyboard that also feature symbols when the "Shift" button is used.
Arrow Keys

The right bottom of a keyboard features four directional arrow keys. These keys provide navigation through word processing documents and also serve as scrolling functions in web browsers.
F Bar

The top of a keyboard features the "F Keys," a selection of keys that extends to "F12" on most keyboards. These keys serve different functions. For example, "Alt and F4" exits out of a program. "F1" will start the typing helper in word processing programs.
Extra Keys

New keyboard feature shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard. These include shortcuts like "Power," "Sleep Mode," "Calculator," "My Computer" and "Web." Some also include media controls for movies and music.

Sometimes the keys that have white and blue writing on them will only respond blue. How do i get them to respond as white instead of blue keys?


You have a FNC key on your keyboard. Since it is a laptop, your keyboard can not have all the keys that a normal keyboard has. This is handled by making some keys perform two or more functions. Thus, the alternate key use if the blue keys (function key is depressed). You will pribably find that there is a light labeled as FNC where you see your caps lock, num lock etc.. it sounds to me that you have your keyboard in alternate function mode so that the keys are performing the alternate functions (probably the numeric keys if it is a normal configuration..).
Thanks!

HP DV 2000 keyboard not responding on all keys. Laptop is 2 years old. Tried all usual remedies including keyboard replacement. Works on a USB plug in keyboard. Any ideas please


If a section of keys isn't working at all, you'll likely need a new keyboard.  If the problem is with IOPUJKL:M keys you may have the Numlock on.

Keyboard LX501 : Function keys work but number and alphabetic keys and other keys dont


Hi,
Check the underside of the keyboard and see if there is a reset button (might be a small pin hole).

If not it might be a software problem.

You probably need to load the Compaq utility that assigns and activates the keys. Go to http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq_support.html
enter the model number of your compaq computer, and search the available downloads for the utility.
